We Call On Suruga Bank To Stop Refusing Bank Accounts On The Basis Of Ethnicity

VAIBS filed a lawsuit demanding Suruga Bank to end the practice of refusing savings accounts to minorities on the basis of their ethnicity. In the lawsuit, VAIBS (Victims Against Illegal Bank Suruga) called on the discriminatory bank to put an end to the arbitrary policy and practice of “ethnic exclusion.” Ethnic exclusion is ineffective as a matter of security policy and inconsistent with Personal Information Protection Act and bank laws. Banks should identify applicants for deposit accounts on the basis of their ID rather than their ethnicity. VAIBS has brought lawsuits to challenge the exclusion of ethnic minorities in Japan. The challenge to minorities exclusion forced the illegal bank to end its exclusion policy and practice.
